Chapter 152 - The spirit world

152,1. We spent a day and a night on that summit and enjoyed much that was magnificent and marvelous.

152,2. There was, of course, nothing marvelous for Me since within Me rests – and must rest – the first cause for all the countless phenomena and happenings. But for all those who were with Me there was a great and boundless abundance of all the magnificent and marvelous things.

152,3. To begin with, there was the extremely delightful wide view which kept the eyes busy all through the day. Then, when the sun had set, I allowed people’s inner vision to open up, so that they could look into the great spirit world.

152,4. How surprised they all were to see above the Earth a vast world full of living and acting beings and very vast, partly most delightful regions and areas, but looking very desolate and melancholy towards midnight.

152,5. I, however, secretly bade all the spirits be silent about Me.

152,6. Many disciples discussed with the spirits life after physical death, and the spirits gave them very obvious proof that after the death of the body there is still another and more perfect life and what it is like.

152,7. Also Kisjonah said: ‘Now all my wishes are fulfilled. By all possess and by this mountain which is standing on my earthly property, I would give one half of all I possess if I could only have some of the principal Sadducees and Essenes here who do not believe in a life after the death of the body. How beautifully these wise people would be knocking their noses against the spirit world. Once I myself was quite captivated by their doctrines, but eventually gave them up again as fortunately a rather weird apparition of my deceased father set me right.

152,8. It is extraordinary. One can of a truth deal and converse with these beings as with the like of us. But what astonishes me is that among so many spirits, of whom I personally recognize some very well, there is to be seen no patriarch, prophet nor king.’

152,9. I said: ‘My dear friend and brother, these are alive in the spirit world just as truly as these, but in order for them to not be accorded a kind of divine adoration by the millions upon millions of spirits, they are kept isolated from the other spirits in a special location called the Limbo , where they wait in their expectation of being, in this very time, freed by Me and then installed in the Heavens of the primordial dwelling place of My angels – which also shall indeed take place shortly.

152,10. Besides that however these spirits of the patriarchs, prophets and righteous kings constitute a kind of watch between Hell proper and the world of spirits, to prevent Hell from darkening, polluting and leading them astray.

152,11. Satan indeed from time to time is permitted to walk abroad in the natural world to cause mischief, but entry to this spirit world is blocked off to all devils everlastingly. Because where life proper has taken its actual inception, death remains far away forever. 'Satan', 'Devil' and 'Hell' are judgment and therefore death itself and have therefore nothing further to do in the Kingdom of life. Do you really understand this?’

152,12. Says Kisjonah: ‘As well as I can and Your grace permitting it. I understand it, o Lord, but there probably is an immense amount behind it which I probably shall not be able to understand until once a dweller myself, of this rather gloomy than friendly world. Towards the East and South this spirit world truly has a most beautiful and friendly appearance, but toward the West and North it looks more miserable and sad than the wide desert where the great Babylon once stood. Such sight then spoils the charm of the East and South.’

152,13. I said: ‘You are right. It verily is as your feeling tells you. But the spirits whom you are seeing now by the hundreds of thousands do not see the West and North the way you do, for a spirit can see only what at any particular time corresponds with his innermost.

152,14. Since however neither the West nor North seen here correspond to their innermost, they see neither West and still less the North. Only after they shall once become equal to My angels, shall they be able to see it all the way you do now.’

152,15. Says Kisjonah: ‘Lord, this is somewhat dim and I do not understand it yet, but I figure that this is not necessary for the present. But since, o Lord, You are right now so liberal with these wonderful revelations, how about showing us, besides all these countless spirits, a couple of angels? I have heard so much about Archangels, Cherubim and Seraphim and have read so much in the Scriptures and formed all kinds of concepts about it which probably were highly imprecise and therefore erroneous. You, o Lord, could provide me with a proper concept now if it were Your holy will.’ The 5 daughters who were constantly around Me also asked Me for it.

152,16. But I said: ‘I intend to do so, but not before this Earth’s midnight. But for now keep conversing with the spirits, only do not give My presence here away to them.’

152,17. All were happy with this promise and anticipated the passing of midnight longingly.
